Welcome to the Martindale-Brightwood Community Development Corporation
The Martindale-Brightwood Community Development Corporation (MBCDC) is committed to the revitalization and rebirth of our community by creating opportunities for homeownership and encouraging commercial and retail development. Our residents will experience a true sense of pride and community in their neighborhoods through our efforts in:
- Developing new housing construction, tax credit properties and acquisition/rehabilitation.
- Sponsoring urban revitalization including neighborhood beautification projects and homeowner occupied rehabilitation repairs.
- Serving as the catalyst for change by the effective engagement of stakeholders, including political leaders, economic development professionals, financial institutions, private developers, entrepreneurs and community residents.
The Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County has received federal stimulus funding to address health hazards and residential safety in Martindale-Brightwood. Funding will also promote local job creation, primarily within contractor services. The CDC has partnered with Health & Hospital to assist with the rehabilitation of several community homes. All participating residents will receive a Healthy Homes assessment and low-cost intervention tools aimed at reducing potential home hazards including, but not limited to, electrical outlet covers, fire extinguishers, handrails and wheelchair ramps. For more information regarding this new program, including qualification requirements, please call 221-2155.
